Marathon – Names Have Been Changed To Protect The Guilty lyrics

Mark and Adam were best friends from the day they were born
Couldn't separate them
But then congress declared war
That's when Adam left town for the city
Organizing war protests
And Mark enlisted in the army
To finally get some respect
Sometimes our beliefs get the glory
While our friends get the neglect
While Mark was wounded overseas
The cops beat Adam in the streets
At the victory parade
Mark's purple heart began to weep
Adam's face was red with a sign that said
"War kills our chance for peace"
And their friendship was just one more casualty
